Support » Plugins » Latest entires pulled from multiple installations?

  • Hi all

    I would like to know if the following is possible

    Say i have multiple wordpress blog installations in subdomains (blog1.domain.com, blog2.domain.com, blog3.domain.com, etc…).

    Is there a way I would pull the latest entries on these blogs into one website (i.e. the main website: http://www.domain.com).

    Maybe with the RSS feed? but how could one RSS feed be created that would combine all newest blog entries from the subdomain blogs….

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated! 🙂

    Hope this is clear…

    Cheers,
    Geary

  • I use Feedparser to do this exact same thing. (It is the core code that powers “aggregated sites”, like Planet GNOME.)

    If you’re comfortable with getting your hands dirty just a tad, you can have this working quite easily. Actually, come to think of it, you can just use PlanetPlanet. It does exactly what you need.

    I use just the basic feed parser to get recent images on my web log from my photolog, and use PlanetPlanet to run an aggregation service of friends’ web logs.

    I think only the feed option would work, and it would be as many feeds as many blogs you have. However, you’ll need a feedreader installed for that display page.

    If you aren’t looking to re-publish the posts, just display the excerpts, something like CG-FeedRead’s “multifeed” feature can do something like this. You provide a list of feeds, and how many total entries to pull together, and it’ll generate time/date sorted entries across the board. Not super-efficient if you get into double-digits, as it currently re-grabs everything at once. (A future version will grab each in a cycle, and re-build the combined output with each update…)
